The Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre, at the AvidXchange Music Factory at 1000 North Carolina Music Factory Blvd., has a capacity of 5,000 -- 2,000 reserved seats and a general admission lawn area. There's no roof, so even the reserved seats are not covered. Parking costs $10.

The larger PNC Music Pavilion is in University City at 707 Pavilion Blvd. The venue’s capacity is almost 19,000, offering approximately 8,614 reserved, theater-style seats (some are covered) and room for about 10,000 people on the lawn. There is no charge for parking at PNC, but VIP parking is available at a cost.

Generally, blankets and lawn chairs are permitted at both venues for lawn ticket holders.

Pro tip: Both venues allow fans to bring in one unopened (factory sealed) bottle of water up to 1 gallon in size or an empty refillable plastic water bottle. At PNC, complimentary water stations are located at Guest Services inside Gate 2.

You’re also permitted to bring in food as long as you pack it in a clear, 1-gallon zip-close bag.

All items are subject to change at the request of the artists, so be sure to check the venue’s websites for updates and additional information – click here for Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre or click here for PNC Music Pavilion.
